But Zilombo gains new, frightening powers every time she reawakens. She's cleverer than ever before . . . . and she likes to eat babies. When Jin's older sister gets distracted along the Oozeburn and forgets to watch their baby brother, Smiler is easy pickings for Zilombo Will Jin's baby brother be the next baby on Zilombo's menu? As Zilombo's powers grow, Jin and Mizz Z team up to outsmart Zilombo.
